THE ROCKFORD FILES: Northern

  Traditionally speaking, the most popular music venues in the South Sound are bars. Most Tacoma bands worth their salt aspire to appear in long standing booze-pouring hot spots such as The Swiss, Brotherhood Lounge, Jazzbones and the former Hell's Kitchen. Even with clubs opening up to all-ages until 8 or

Thursday, Jan. 10: Casey Rocheteau

OK, so you're not into the really olden Golden Girl every Tuesday night.  You're not really a gallery type, watching dance performances makes your pasty little limbs quiver and if you could have it your way, you'd unplug the phone and hole yourself up in a dingy, dimly-lit room, limiting

Friday, Jan. 11: "Kindergarten Cop" with Pamela Reed

In Kindergarten Cop, Hollywood's Lord of the Abs Ah-nold Schwarzenegger played a typical '80s movie super cop turned dedicated educator of precocious scamps - including a tumor-forewarning death-obsessive and a genitalia expert. Between the opening and closing credits, detective John Kimble saved a school and a family from a ponytailed

FROM WBTV... It's been two weeks since the Concord community came together to welcome home 23-year-old Tyler Jeffries. The celebration was complete with an escort from the Patriot Guard and an official "Tyler Jeffries Day" proclamation by the mayor. Jeffries has since settled in for a short stay at home.

Uniform Wear Policies Vary Among Military Services

Goodbye casual Fridays, at least for the Marine Corps. Effective last week, all nondeployed Marines and sailors assigned to Marine units are required to wear the appropriate seasonal service uniform.

Healing Waters Fly Fishing. The way of the peaceful warrior

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. - For many of America's war-torn and disabled veterans, adjusting to life as a combat casualty can be the mental and physical journey of a thousand miles.

Saturday, Jan. 12: Palestinian Nonviolent Resistance

Even if you don't quite understand the complicated politics behind the bitter intractability of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, you'll have a visceral reaction to 5 Broken Cameras, a documentary that captures five years of protests via the amateur lenses of Emad Burnat, a Palestinian farmer whose hometown of Bil'in on the

Remember that sudden swing dancing craze about 10 years ago? I was living in Hollywood at the time, and my roommates were regulars at the Brown Derby, so I enjoyed a crash course in the lush life. That craze left town before I did, but its timeless,

Saturdays: Fools Play Improv

I improvised for 20 minutes on stage once, but that was because a prop got lost and our show was in freefall. Believe me, it's a lot more fun when actors plan to not plan. Of course, quality improv comedy is never entirely made up on the

Dear Drink: Cointreau

  Dear Cointreau, OK, look. You're up to your neck in it, right Cointreau? Too much Mount Gay Rum, too much Remy Martin VOSP Cognac, too many trips through the effing blender with that no-good Milagro Tequila followed by dumps into a ridiculous salt-rim glass the size of a human head. You're
